About this Episode

Welcome to The Schmidt Show

In recent days and weeks we've been told over and over again to tone down the rhetoric. I would suggest that this may actually be just more rhetoric and I would suggest a different tactic. If you are looking for a passionate and engaging look at politics with a side order of not taking ourselves to seriously you are gonna love The Schmidt Show.

  • What 'tone down the rhetoric' really means. — You hear a lot of people in political conversations these days talking about the need to “tone down the rhetoric,” although it is not always clear what they mean.
  • The Ugly Election That Birthed Modern American Politics — A presidential race was not a popularity contest, as it soon would become; a candidate succeeded by appealing to other professional politicians as much as to ordinary citizens. And the appeal itself remained oblique to the point of coyness. A presidential candidate of 1824 could no more afford to be seen openly campaigning than a candidate for the papacy can today.
  • Bolsonaro wins Brazil presidential race — "We cannot continue flirting with communism ... We are going to change the destiny of Brazil," Bolsonaro said in an acceptance address in which he vowed to carry out his campaign promises to stamp out corruption after years of leftist rule.
